I sang in a couple of Operas during my college days.
I discerned a vocation to priesthood in college. I was involved in campus ministry and I wanted to continue to minister to others and I felt God calling me to grow deeper in my spiritual life. I saw my gifts and talents as being suited for priesthood – a strong musical background and a love for liturgy. Although I wasn’t completely certain that I was destined to be a priest, I entered the seminary after college. My vocation to the priesthood became more and more clear as I discerned in seminary.

|What has been your favorite/most memorable story of your time at Mundelein thus far?||
Welcome weekend and the Big Tent Party. The seminarians were placed into groups and competed in games all afternoon. It was a great day of fraternity and a good way to begin the school year.
|How can Mundelein's donors and community pray for you?||
Please pray that I continue my preparation for priesthood with a pure heart and grow in my relationship with Jesus Christ, that I may serve the people of God as a good and holy priest.
